HONG KONG: THE 600 TONNES OF MEAT SMUGGLED TO CHINA EACH DAY BY SEA OUTWEIGHS THE AMOUNT SEIZED IN 3 MONTHS

The Hong Kong Free Press on 6 April reported on an investigation which found that frozen meat smuggling to Mainland China remains frequent despite multiple operations conducted by customs and marine police this year, with smuggling syndicates said to be operating daily.  The smuggling operation is said to involve about 100 vessels each evening, largely outnumbering the only 1 or 2 government launches that patrol the scene.  It is said that, on average, criminals are suspected to be smuggling over 600 tonnes of frozen meat every day, more than the amount that customs and marine police have seized in the past 3 months.
